To us having the fabulous wedding was more important than the fabulous honeymoon even though we are doing exactly what we wanted to for our honeymoon (cruise to Bermuda). The way I see it, you can always travel to those destinations and experience the things you want to experience later in life. Your wedding only happens once.

I vote fabulous Honeymoon – if you can have a nice, intimate wedding with the people who matter, and then go on an amazing honeymoon after, you’ve hit the jackpot IMO.  The wedding is just one day – you could add on a whole extra week to your honeymoon if you cut your budget right.  But ultimately, it’s what matters to the both of you – I’m with your Fiance though, I’d kill to go to Bora Bora for my honeymoon!

A fabulous Wedding for sure!!!  You can always travel with your honey to wonderful destinations at another time when your budget allows.  You can’t have a re-do of your wedding day.  Once it’s over, it’s over and you don’t want to have any regrets!

It really depends on the person. To me and my SO it is a fabulous honeymoon! We just want to be married, because we want those vows. We both could care less about the “wedding”, or the “show”. We want to have a great get away, to be in eachothers arms, and explore  a different destination and culture together. Tomorrow may never come, so it is what is most important to you at that time. Everyone’s different.

Personally, I would scale down the wedding and opt for a fabulous honeymoon, unless you are 100% positive that you WILL do the trip later.  A smaller still fabulous more intimate wedding followed by fabulous honeymoon.  In 5 years, Bora Bora *could* be a great aniversary trip, but who knows what will happen then.  Other priorities may come into play or you may not be able to find the time or the budget.. just who knows.  What other great excuse is there to splurge on a trip like Bora Bora than a honeymoon!

We are having an intimate wedding but a fabulous honeymoon and many more things that really matters to us.  

We are thinking…a mini vacay before and right after the wedding since we are not going to our honeymoon until 5 month after our wedding.  We plan to go to Asia then Maldives for 2-3 weeks.

@BlushingBride12: I vote honeymoon. I feel like it’d be great to have a dream wedding, but you’re spending sooo much money for about 5 hours in one day… it just seems silly when you stop and think about it. (Our wedding is getting so pricey that we’re having to take a down-sized honeymoon, and I’m pretty bummed about it!). A honeymoon is a week + of adventure between the two of you. And although you say you guys will always be able to travel, you won’t. Soon you’ll have dogs, kids, and limited budgets/time for these things (yes I’m over-exaggerating/generalizing, but still). I say honeymoon!

Definitely a fabulous wedding because you only have one!

Honestly we were so exhausted on our honeymoon that we could have been anywhere relaxing (we went to Jamaica) and it would have been awesome!

I’d rather have the honeymoon. While the wedding is a really important, once-in-a-lifetime day, it’s not special because of how much money we spend on it.

But we’ll get much more out of a honeymoon if we have a longer one, in a special location, with good accomodations. Not everyone has the opportunity to travel whenever we like (um…*raises hand*). Given the choice, I’d rather travel than have an expensive, blowout wedding.
